Grace Church began in the mid-1940s as a Bible study in Barberton, Ohio. In 1958, the group joined in the National Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches. It’s now a thriving multi-site church of more than eight thousand people, with new campuses starting in the United States and beyond.
Senior Pastor, Dr. Jeff Bogue, says, “The church is full of ordinary people trying to live extraordinary lives. At some point, someone shared the story of Jesus with each of us, and we believe that knowing him is the key to a meaningful, purpose-filled life.”
Grace’s mission is to know the gospel (the story of Jesus), share it, and live it out. As church leaders and other members put it, we strive to “Know it. Live it. Give it away.” The story of Jesus is the heartbeat of Grace Church.
